College Student Wears ‘Black Lives Matter’ T-Shirt to Thanksgiving Dinner, said ‘White Privilege is Real’
For all the conversations you had trying or wanting to explain how idiotic it is to call Black Lives Matter a terrorist group. Black Lives Matter clearly states their positions online and none of it is hate rhetoric or with a mission amid at eliminating multiple groups of people. However, the KKK has no history of incarceration, CIA investigation, or political deaths. Here’s one white girl who totally get its.
Rachel Malstrom, at the University of Maryland wore a Black Lives Matter t-shirt and was asked to cover it up while at thanksgiving with her family.
“I don’t see ‘Black Lives Matter’ as a political statement. Black lives matter and black people don’t deserve to die — nothing political about that,” wrote [Rachel] Malstrom, who added that the experience has been an eye-opener.
“White privilege is real. Would my tweet have gone viral and accumulated so much praise if I wasn’t white? Probably not. It’s heartbreaking to see myself treated as a ‘hero’ for simply advocating for basic human rights.”
